KR start pre-season with York victory

Hull KR’s preparations for the season started with a 28-6 win over York City Knights.

Danny Addy scored twice as the Robins raced into a 22-0 half-time lead before making a raft of changes.

Danny McGuire made his first appearance for the club in a 40-minute cameo, as both the Rovers and York celebrated Ben Cockayne’s testimonial.

Liam Salter, Rob Mulhern, Mose Masoe and Addy all scored first-half tries to establish a 22-0 lead.

Both sides made changes at half-time, and to their credit the League 1 outfit competed well in the second-half, matching the Robins six apiece.

Addy scored his second try before Harry Carter scored in the closing moments, with Cockayne kicked the conversion.
